If you've been married or in a long-term relationship for a while, you may have experienced what's known as a "relationship rut." Perhaps you take each other for granted or don't appreciate one other like you used to in the beginning of your relationship. Habits you once found endearing now grate on you like nails on a chalkboard. You've fallen into a nightly or weekend routine, and what used to feel like fireworks when your significant other walked into the room now resembles a match that fizzles out.

What to do when this happens? Don't despair. All it takes is one small action to jumpstart things and you'll be amazed at the results.

Here are 8 simple things you can try today:

1. Cook his or her favorite meal. Or, order in so no one has to cook at all.

2. Compliment him or her. Kind words go a long way.

3. Send a flirty text message. (Men: A d*ck pic doesn't count!)

4. Have sex at a completely random unexpected time. If you have young kids, put on a movie for them and lock the bedroom door.

5. Be genuinely excited to see them after a long day. Give them a hug or a kiss, or tell them you missed them.

6. Say thank you. You'll be surprised at how those two small words can mean the world to someone.

7. Talk about fond memories from when you first fell in love.

8. A simple touch can go a long way--a touch on the shoulder when you walk by, an arm around the waist, a squeeze on the arm.

Remember why you're with that person in the first place!
